iMac Pro needs a DFU restore if it is interrupted while on a MacOS update

Apple’s latest beast iMac Pro is just about on everyone’s tongue around the world right now. It is pitched the most powerful PC ever built by Apple. Something full of so much raw power is the dream of many computer-related workers like designers and video editors.

But it also seems that we don’t know the machine completely right now, there is still a pool of technical information that we need to learn in order to fully understand it. Just like the fact that the new iMac Pro would require a complete DFU restore like the iOS devices require sometimes.

Most people believe that this is because of the T2 chip (Apple’s own) inside the new beast. This discovery was made by Steven Troughton-Smith. Apple explained this situation and how to come out of it yourself in one of the Configurator 2.x web pages, the explanation of why do you need to do this maneuver may suggest that it only happens if a power cut occurs during a macOS update on the computer.

But developers say that it can happen due to several other reasons too. Now that you know that a DFU restore may be required by the iMac, you should also know that the DFU on an iMac is not as simple as the DFU on other iOS devices that are pretty lightweight as compared to the iMac Pro.

To carry out the restore, you require another Mac (or maybe another device that is running on macOS) with internet access, and a Type-A or USB-C to USB-C, or a Thunderbolt cable. If you don’t have a spare Mac lying around, you can always take it to an Apple Store for service.
